“Your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.” -Doc Brown
Being the massive "Back to the Future" fan, I had been looking forward to 2015 for quite some time, and by quite some time I mean several years. No, I did not expect us to get flying boards or legitimate hover boards this year. No, I wasn't getting my hopes up for a "Jaws 19." No, I wasn't putting my money on the Cubs to win the World Series (though there's still a chance of that happening...). I joked about all things happening, but my high anticipation for 2015 went far beyond that. To me, 2015 signaled the start of the future. Technically, you can never live in "the future," but metaphorically you can live in the past.
2015 is the start of something new. The beginning of every new year is the perfect time to start anew and set new year resolutions, but truth be told, you can do that at any point during the time. It just takes self-discipline to set them and, more importantly, follow through with it. But 2015 marks the future. It's important to learn from the past and live in the present, but the days of looking forward to the future are over, because it's here. How many times have you said to yourself, "Oh, I'll get to that in the future"? Well, the future is now!
